Wenatchee is All-Sports Leader
The league standings for 11 sports are complete after the fall and winter seasons, and the Panthers have had the most success so far among the six Columbia Basin Big Nine Conference members. Using the cross country and golf method of low score being the leader, the numbers are below. First place earns a one, second place two, etc. through six places (four in bowling). There are nine more sports to go in the spring – boys tennis, girls tennis, boys track, girls track, boys golf, girls golf, boys soccer, baseball and softball.

I can’t do it in chart form in this blog, so will go with the following. BBB = Boys Basketball, GBB = Girls Basketball, Bowl = Bowling, BCC = Boys Cross Country, GCC = Girls Cross Country, Foot = Football, GSoc = Girls Soccer, BSw = Boys Swimming, GSw = Girls Swimming, Voll = Volleyball and Wre = Wrestling.
